Geospiza, NuGen Team Up to Provide Data Analysis, Sample Prep for NGS


Geospiza and NuGen Technologies, a genomic sample preparation company, have agreed to combine their products to provide a next-generation sequencing workflow targeted toward large disease research studies.

Specifically, the firms are combining Geospiza’s GeneSifter preconfigured lab and analysis cloud software with NuGen’s Ovation and Encore reagents.

The two products will “enable researchers to follow and document a step-by-step best practice for sample preparation combined with fully integrated data analysis and other sample information in one system,” Rob Arnold, Geospiza’s president, said in a statement.

Elizabeth Hutt, CEO of NuGen, added that her firm’s offerings “complement nicely with Geospiza’s platform” and that the partners expect the combined solution will eliminate sample-preparation and analysis bottlenecks from NGS studies.
